Yeah. What IS with Radio Sprits, anyway? For, one. I don't think they actually have the rights to ALL of the shows they are claiming they have the rights to. It is simply not logical. They May be 'Attempting' to Gain the rights to many shows and many deals May be 'in the works' to garner said rights. Many, from the estates of whomever can actually grant them "these Rights." But if you don't have it signed, sealed and delivered (and registered) document in hand, then, they should not be allowed to go around and make demands on sites to remove what they don't solidly own.

Have any of you been to their site to see what they offer??? It's crazy!! They offer a handful of shows for some exorbitant price! Their offerings are like 6-8 episodes of a show; 2 from one year. 2 from a completely different year, etc. So you get 8 episodes of their choosing from across 10 or so years of a shows run for around $35!!

???

They seem out of touch with what the public and collectors actually want. Nowadays, people are buying entire seasons of a TV program and they want the episodes in chronological order and without any missing!

Radio sprits is somewhere out in left field with their approach. I mean, who want's whatever episodes from whenever broadcast year in however order. Out Of Touch. Or maybe it's a case of the 'we don't cares.'

More than a decade ago I would hear Radio Spirits over local radio stations. This Radio Spirits thing seems to be a case of corporate lawyers resorting to whatever method they can so Radio Spirits can continue profiting from their business model with what should be public domain radio history. It seems analogous to that scam where someone tells you they'll "Name a star after someone". (There are only some 6000 stars of naked eye visibility!) Times are tough - people will take advantage any way they can. And they'll hire high power lawyers to defend these practices. Radio Spirits ought to be located and crushed some way and do something honest for a change.
